Fant de Kanter Composer

Fant de Kanter is a modern composer from Amsterdam (The Netherlands). It is quite impossible to define a dominant influence in the music of Fant de Kanter. A lot of his work is indeed characterized by, for example, classical structures, but an unmistakable love for pop music is at least equally noticeable. Tradition aswell as avant-garde techniques serve as a means to shape a musical thought, without themselves ever becoming the goal.

Latest CD If the Owl Calls Again from mezzo soprano Christianne Stotijn includes three songs by Fant de Kanter: Abboen for mezzo solo, Onbot for mezzo and viola, and Arapka for mezzo and double bass. I wrote these songs especially for Christianne, after a careful search together for the right texts. They're all prayers, but in very different manners...
